I am interested in the art of improvising, in the moment of sharing. Sensing the space and all that that includes. Excited about allowing anything and everything to happen and in that acceptance, allowing the unknown to unfold. Without judgment, letting the intelligence of life to come through. All things are constantly changing; I would like to enjoy these changes.
